Explore how art and math combine through fun, informative, and creative hands-on projects. Students will do things such as create drawings, origami sculptures, and use Sculpey clay for individual and group works. Learn about the works of painter Piet Mondrian, the Golden Mean, the Cubist movement, and much more during this week long session. In art, mathematics is not always visible, but it is ever present through symmetry, geometry, and measurement. Create projects like kinetic wire sculptures, and explore the use of mixed media like paint, metal, wood, wire, and beads.
Whether practicing observation skills through drawing, or investigating non-traditional painting methods, participants in this one-week camp will discover the seamless ways in which creativity, innovation, and the sciences work together. A little messy, a lot of fun! Artists have been inspired by the wonders of science for hundreds of years. During this week of art camp students will investigate, explore and create science-inspired projects such as nature prints, kinetic sculptures, color theory and optical illusion art.
